In the hit Korean drama, “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim,” successful businessman, Lee Young Joon, is the vice-president of his family’s company, The Yoomyung Group. He has the perfect life and is a genius, but his egoistic and self-absorbed personality makes it difficult for him to be aware of what is happening around him.

Working for nine years under Lee Young Joon as a secretary, Kim Mi So attended to all of his needs and has put up with years of contempt. Finally, she was able to pay off all of her family’s debt and will be able to live the life she always wanted. Just when she thought things were about to settle, she had not realized how determined Lee Young Joon was to stop her from quitting. 

The series overall had a very consistent flow of twists, excitement, and comedy. Scoring a 9.7 out of 10 on global TV site: Viki Rakuten, it became easily recognizable by hearing the title. From beginning to end, the main actors filled their roles nicely and created a strong sense of chemistry that tightly packed the episodes of the series together. The sequence of events displayed in every episode were relevant and added to the final outcome, it was well organized and very well put.

Comedy is one of my absolute favorite genres to watch, but many Korean dramas have a similar plot, which makes many of them unoriginal. However, “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim” shattered many of those stereotypes. Dramas tend to open with past events such as a character’s childhood, but “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim” caught my attention by it’s use of foreshadowing. In conclusion, this series has grown to become one of my favorite dramas to have watched.
